Lecture and Book Signing with Susan McMillian – Images of America: North Myrtle Beach
In 1968, the family-based Cherry Grove, Ocean Drive, Crescent, and Windy Hill Beaches were consolidated into one municipality, gaining a stronger presence with a new name of North Myrtle Beach. Looking back at North Myrtle Beach’s underpinnings, Roberts Pavilion (later renamed OD Pavilion), Fat Harold’s, and The Pad led the Carolina Shag dancing phenomenon for which Ocean Drive is famous. When Hurricane Hazel struck in 1954, vintage cottages and early guest hotels were replaced by Mid-Century Modern motels with a fresh vibe. The Horry County Museum and AVX Foundation present a lecture and book signing with Susan McMillian for her new publication, Images of America: North Myrtle Beach, on Saturday, June 19th at 1 p.m. Books are available for purchase in the Museum lobby.
